12 CFR Appendix E to Part 1026, Rules for Card Issuers That Bill on a Transaction-by-Transaction Basis

Appendix E to Part 1026 - Rules for Card Issuers That Bill on a Transaction-by-Transaction Basis

The following provisions of Subpart B apply if credit cards are issued and the card issuer and the seller are the same or related persons; no finance charge is imposed; consumers are billed in full for each use of the card on a transaction-by-transaction basis, by means of an invoice or other statement reflecting each use of the card; and no cumulative account is maintained which reflects the transactions by each consumer during a period of time, such as a month. The term “related person” refers to, for example, a franchised or licensed seller of a creditor's product or service or a seller who assigns or sells sales accounts to a creditor or arranges for credit under a plan that allows the consumer to use the credit only in transactions with that seller. A seller is not related to the creditor merely because the seller and the creditor have an agreement authorizing the seller to honor the creditor's credit card.

1. Section 1026.6(a)(5) or § 1026.6(b)(5)(iii).

2. Section 1026.6(a)(2) or § 1026.6(b)(3)(ii)(B), as applicable. The disclosure required by § 1026.6(a)(2) or § 1026.6(b)(3)(ii)(B) shall be limited to those charges that are or may be imposed as a result of the deferral of payment by use of the card, such as late payment or delinquency charges. A tabular format is not required.

3. Section 1026.6(a)(4) or § 1026.6(b)(5)(ii).

4. Section 1026.7(a)(2) or § 1026.7(b)(2), as applicable; § 1026.7(a)(9) or § 1026.7(b)(9), as applicable. Creditors may comply by placing the required disclosures on the invoice or statement sent to the consumer for each transaction.

5. Section 1026.9(a). Creditors may comply by mailing or delivering the statement required by § 1026.6(a)(5) or § 1026.6(b)(5)(iii) (see appendix G-3 and G-3(A) to this part) to each consumer receiving a transaction invoice during a one-month period chosen by the card issuer or by sending either the statement prescribed by § 1026.6(a)(5) or § 1026.6(b)(5)(iii), or an alternative billing error rights statement substantially similar to that in appendix G-4 and G-4(A) to this part, with each invoice sent to a consumer.

6. Section 1026.9(c). A tabular format is not required.

7. Section 1026.10.

8. Section 1026.11(a). This section applies when a card issuer receives a payment or other credit that exceeds by more than $1 the amount due, as shown on the transaction invoice. The requirement to credit amounts to an account may be complied with by other reasonable means, such as by a credit memorandum. Since no periodic statement is provided, a notice of the credit balance shall be sent to the consumer within a reasonable period of time following its occurrence unless a refund of the credit balance is mailed or delivered to the consumer within seven business days of its receipt by the card issuer.

9. Section 1026.12 including § 1026.12(c) and (d), as applicable. Section 1026.12(e) is inapplicable.

10. Section 1026.13, as applicable. All references to “periodic statement” shall be read to indicate the invoice or other statement for the relevant transaction. All actions with regard to correcting and adjusting a consumer's account may be taken by issuing a refund or a new invoice, or by other appropriate means consistent with the purposes of the section.

11. Section 1026.15, as applicable.
